Mute Monday: Patriot(ism)


















After yesterday's performance, I had to put these guys in. Two shining examples of gentlemen of impeccable behaviour, superhuman determination and amazing talent gave us the most thrilling final our famous tennis Championships have ever seen. Each a polite statesman and glowing representative for his own country whilst giving a fabulous sheen to the epitome of mine.

You know, I think it's great to feel love and honour for your own country.
It isn't a 'racism' thing. It's pride.

Nicely done. Lots to be proud of. Thanks for the last two shots – I was glued to the television for most of the day, rain delays and all, on the edge of my seat. What a match!

Yeah and did you see the interview with Bjorg and Mcanrow before hand, they had and still do have respect for each other.
